RE at Springwell Park


In EYFS, we begin developing our RE skills and knowledge in the 'understanding the world ' area of development, specifically 'people, culture, and communities'. This learning is the foundation for our RE work when we start KS1. 


At Springwell, our aim with RE is to engage our pupils in systematic enquiry into significant human questions which religion and worldviews address, so that they can develop the understanding and skills needed to appreciate and appraise varied responses to those questions, as well as develop responses of their own.

Pupils are given opportunities to reflect upon their own personal responses, evaluate wisdom from different sources and learn to articulate clearly and coherently their personal beliefs, ideas, values and experiences while respecting the right of others to differ.

The curriculum at Springwell Park aims to ensure that all pupils:


  • Know about and understand a range of religious and non-religious worldviews

  • Express ideas and insights about the nature, significance and impact of religious and non-religious worldviews

  • Gain and deploy the skills needed to engage seriously with religious and non-religious worldviews.



The RE curriculum units are based around three strands of Believing, Expressing, & Living. Each strand is broken down into ‘threads’ so that prior learning and what is to follow helps pupils to see the narrative of the curriculum and build on their prior learning as they move through school. 

Our curriculum refers to religions and worldviews throughout each year group. The term ‘worldview’ encompasses a broad range of ideas, incorporating the religious and non-religious. We focus on two areas of ‘worldviews’ throughout the curriculum; organised worldviews (the traditional religions studied in RE) and personal worldviews (the way in how we encounter the world, including our own place in it).


Children can describe, explain and analyse beliefs and practices, recognising the diversity which exists within and between communities, explain reasonably their ideas about how beliefs, practices and form of expression influence individuals and communities and find out about and investigate key concepts and questions of belonging, meaning, purpose and truth, responding creatively.
